Foster care can be a challenging career but one that’s also very rewarding too.
If you’re thinking of becoming a foster carer with us, it’s important that you find out as much information as you can about what’s involved in fostering, why children need foster care and how we support you.
We know that providing the right support and training for our foster carers is vital to ensuring a positive future for every child and young person living in care.
Many of the children and young people referred to us have experienced some level of trauma or earlier life difficulty which affects their behaviour and relationships with others. Many of these children will have complex needs, making considerable demands on their carers.
Our high quality foster carer training equips carers with a range of skills and the confidence to meet the individual needs of the children in their care. And the competitive allowances we offer reflect their hard work as well as covering the cost of looking after a child living in care.
